6:45pm
the folks behind this stop the shell shock campaign who contend the rates could double and here is their proof. a recent presentation by the public utilities commission that projects rates going from .078 to .15 saying the rates would almost exactly double. the numbers are accurate but don't tell the whole story. >> there are many line items on your current electricity bill. we are only changing the generation line item because we are changing to 100% renewable. >> reporter: if you factor in the cost for transmission, distribution and billing which will remain the same under the deal and the rate jump is far less than double but still sizable depending on how much energy you use. according to clean power sf's own data the most typical customers will be increases of
6:46pm
$10 and $21 a month respecti respectively. that means between 55 and 47% more after a new deal than they would right now. while that might not be double the rates it is healthy enough for about 90,000 sann francisc n franciscans. >> everybody should disclose the information and the facts. the main fact that is not disclosed is shell energy for up to five years. >> reporter: clean power sf says there is currently some awareness among city residents about a possible deal with shell but will be ramping up the information campaign if, in fact, it is finalized. those eligible will be automatically enrolled and have the option to opt out without a fee. you will pay a premium for renewable energy, maybe not double. the claim is mostly false. i'm sam brock and that is the
